Attention patriotic seniors!  Interested in earning a $1,000 scholarship to put towards your post-high school education plans?  The Elk Grove VFW has generously created a scholarship which will be awarded to not one, but TWO patriotic seniors this spring.  Application materials, including a 2 page essay, are due in April, so take advantage of this opportunity ASAP.  Stop by the College and Career Center or see Miss Kezios for specific information.  

 

It's not OUR yearbook; it's YOUR yearbook!  This is the LAST week to reserve your yearbook!  If you aren't sure whether you have reserved one, check Infinite Campus under "Fees" and look for "Yearbook 2017-2018."  Any other year means you didn't order one yet this year.  There will be limited numbers available at distribution, but once they're gone, they're gone.  Don't be left out.  Reserve YOUR book today, because pre-sales end February 28.  $50 in the Student Activities office or at jostens.com.

Attention all Seniors... All of you have received an e-mail with a survey asking you to give us your height and weight for caps and gowns.  This survey is very important and must be filled out or we will not be able to order you the correct sized cap and gown. The e-mail is titled, "Graduation Survey" and it is from Heather DeCook. Please make sure you go to your district e-mail and fill out this quick survey ASAP! See/E-mail Mrs. DeCook with any questions.

 

Have you made a movie yet for the 2018 CinéStudent Film Festival?  Time i s running out. We are currently accepting any short film, as long as it is under 10 minutes in length. Walk the red carpet. Win cash and prizes. The regular deadline is March 6th. The late deadline is March 16th. See Mr. Janu for more information or visit the CSFF website at cinestudentfilmfest.org

 

Did you know that when you sneeze or cough your germs can travel from 12 to 15 feet?  Since we are seeing a lot of colds and flu at EGHS it is a good time to remind everyone to make sure you wash your hands frequently, especially before eating.  Don’t share drinks or utensils and cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze.  If you have a fever over 100 degrees, you must stay home until you no longer have a fever for 24 hours.    See your doctor if you have a fever, body aches, sore throat, runny nose and cough because you may have the flu.  On the other hand, if you are not that ill you should try to come to school because the new state guidelines only allow you to miss 4.5 days per semester or you will be considered truant.  The only exception is if you have a doctor’s note.  So, take care of yourself, get plenty of sleep, eat a balanced diet and drink plenty of water.

 

Attention all Juniors!  The Meningitis Vaccine is mandatory in order to start Senior year.  If you are not sure if you have had it, please check in with the Nurse.  You will not be able to start school without it.  Many clinics run out of the vaccine over the summer, so get it as soon as possible!  There will be mobile van here to administer the vaccine on February 15 for those who have Medicaid or No Insurance.  Please see the Nurse to register.
